the election. and this from carl. chris christie is able to put aside political differences in a time of disaster. quite different from now democrats treated president bush after katrina. this from james. fitting it tacks an act of god to finally spotlight romney's weaknesses. thank you for your responses and joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >> thank you so much. it's 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 a.m. on the west coast. recovery is a word you are going to be hearing a lot of in the next few days. the word normalcy, not so much. in the wake of superstorm sandy, normal life is a far off dream for so many millions in the northeast corridor and points west. worst of all, a still growing toll of lives lost. at least 40 in the u.s. one so far in canada. more than 6 million homes and businesses still don't have electricity but that is a big improvement from yesterday. and while floods and surges with some exceptions have gone down, that just makes the devastation all the more apparent. you are looking at point pleasant beach halfway betw
stopped by fema headquarters in washington before heading to new jersey to join governor chris christie to tour the damage caused by sandy. we're going to get to that in a moment. buses and ferries are running and bridges into manhattan are now open. the nation's largest subway system is still water logged. limited subway and rail service begins tomorrow. one sign of normalcy today, the new york stock exchange is open. the opening bell rung by mayor bloomberg. president obama arrived as i said in new jersey in last hour to get a personal look at the devastation that sandy left behind. he's touring the damage zone with one of republican mitt romney's most vocal supporters, new jersey governor chris christie who says this is no time for politics. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do to get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he's been outstanding to deal with on this. >> i'm joined by chief political correspondent candy cro
crist kristie came out and said that the white house has done a first -- governor chris christie came out and said that the white house did a great job. >> i think getting praise from chris christie, a republican governor from new jersey, is huge. he has said more than the democratic governors, actually. i think it creates the idea that the president is handling this well. i think you could possibly see a small bump in a very tight race for the president come this weekend or monday. >> everyone on the east coast is very focused on the devastation caused by sandy. you are in texas. i wonder if everyone is looking at this with the same intensity. >> is the number one story that people are talking about no matter where you live. i am in austin, texas and i have relatives all over the country. this is the number-one thing that they are talking about. there is also a sense of exactly what this is doing in the presidential race. it has been very heated for two years now and is coming to an end. no matter where you live, this is the big concern. people will begin to turn back to the presiden
boosters, new jersey governor chris christie, being there with president obama saying sort of,"to hell with politics, this is about people's lives." t think we could see a similar endorsement or chris christie says president obama is best on this issue? >> i doubt he would actually say that in so many words. but i think he actually did say something with body language an@ with political theater. it is a very, very important distinction. you saw chris christie snap into pragmatic governor mode, and mode much more similar to the way, for example, mike bloomberg conducts himself as mayor of the city. sure, his ideological views, but when there is a real crunch and a real need for leadership, he is not going to stand on -- he is not going to lean toward political posturing and certainly is not going at that point to pretend that the federal government has nothing to do with the health and welfare of american society. i think chris christie was communicating something significant in how he worked with the president and singled out the president's -- by the way, singled out fema for administ

. he was on the phone with governors and mayors all up and down the eastern seaboard. chris christie, the governor of new jersey, his state was hardest hit. he had made some very favorable comments. over the last couple of months they made some really favorable comments. so, here is a moment in which a president can show great leadership, an opportunity to demonstrate the power of the white house or incumbency, or he can screw it up and bought everything, losing the election because of it. he is probably tilting towards the leadership right now. there have not been any serious critiques of the obama handling of the storm in the aftermath. what is mitt romney to do? he is in this middle place, where there is no role for an opposition candidate. no accepted script for what one of these candidates is supposed to do when one of these storms come along. there is a risk for both sides and a benefit that advantages obama more than mitt romney. >> governor romney will be in florida for these three rallies. also, vice-president joe biden. there it is. we will show you governor romney in flori
bedfellows, president obama and governor chris christie now united in crisis. they have been working closely to clean up new jersey after superstorm sandy left parts of the state in ruins, but christie's been far from friendly with the president in the past, acting as one of mitt romney's most outspoken attack dogs, slamming the president's leadership in stump speeches and campaign rallies all year. listen to christie just two weeks ago. >> he never ran anything in his life so the president doesn't know how to lead. we watch what he's been like for the past four years. he's like a man wandering around a dark room, hand up against the wall, clutching for the light switch of leadership, and he just can't find it, and he won't find it in the next 18 days! >> apparently governor christie thinks the governor has found it. cnn contributors errol lewis and eric join us. i want to read a tweet you posted not too long ago. it's so cute that obama is trying to look like he's in charge with the hurricane. someone should ask the libyan consulate for a comment. do you still stand by this, and what do you

be doing and he's got people like governor chris christie who has been very critical of the president saying the president has been all over this one and he deserves credit. i think the president is doing what he should be doing right now and it's a delicate situation for mitt romney. if he looks too political people will criticize him. i'm sure there will be plenty of liberals pointing fingers saying, he wanted to help. he went to ohio to send things to new jersey. by unless a tough spot. this is a time when public officials get to be public officials and candidates have to tread lightly. megyn: do you think people will criticize mitt romney for trying to get people to help. >> i think susan and i agree on many things. the critical thing is you can't look political. even the president who is the commander-in-chief who has an important role. the governors are out front and they are on the line, governors, mayors, and you have to be careful. you can't run around now and go to these states, these hotpots and bring air force one and the entourage in because you will be taking police and
seen. it will take weeks and months to recover. megyn: earlier today governor chris christie calling the devastation on the jersey coast unthinkable. parts of the seaside park are now in the ocean. we saw still photography showing the rollercoaster literally in the middle of the ocean. there are new reports that the ride has been entirely swept away by the storm surge. listen to the governor earlier. >> the pier at seaside park is essentially half washed out. the rollercoaster is now in the ocean. the second pier, the more southerly pier is significantly damaged and some of those amusements are now in the ocean. megyn: 2 million people remain without electricity in new jersey. the first priority is helping people still at risk. joining us is new jersey congressman chris smith who represents people living along the hard-hit jersey shore. you are touring with the governor to see the devastation. can you give us a feel for what you have seen and heard so far? >> the governor just left delmar. it has been devastated. i was in point pleasant earlier today. water is everywhere. boats on on
republican governor chris christie could produce what could be the biggest public works project in a generation, to meet and entrust that national emergency. remember when president obama was elected, he said he'd put a lot of people to work in shovel-ready job. turned out there weren't that many jobs that were ready in. the wake of sandy, i don't think there are enough shovels ready for up and down the jersey and new york coast. these jobs will be created. this destruction, estimated between $30 billion and $50 billion. i think it's going to exceed that. maybe at least get to the high end. will finally move the employment need until this country. now, when we look at industries that have been hardest hit since the great recession, the one that stands out the most is the construction business. construction business is about half of what it was six years ago. the culprit, banks that are afraid to lend, excess of homes, no need for new buildings and roads. the federal government doesn't need loans from banks. the federal government can cut immediate checks to get work done. the fe
even had republicans, including the prominent republican chris christie, praising him for his efforts, so all around praise for the president. in reacting to this, he's able to look the part, and people seemed to react to what he was doing. >> well, let's talk about that reaction because we just learned that even mayor bloomberg has somewhat endorsed president obama, and as you just mentioned, i mean we've seen sort of a bromance, right, between governor krit tee who has been such a supporter of romney and now barack obama. i mean he has been ee fusive in his praise of the president. what is your sense as to what effect that may have on this election? >> mitt romney has been trying for the longest time to be a bipartisan, even post-partisan leader, and mitt romney is now seeing barack obama play that role in real life. chris christie to go out of his way in praising president obama and then mayor bloomberg's endorsement. mayor bloomberg epitomizes the idea of someone beyond party labels. so for him to come off the sidelines now and cite president obama on his position on climate chang
power for ten to 15 days. and governor chris christie is worried. >> general new jersey. if it looks stupid it is stupid. >> reporter: they're driving to the east coast in front of sandy's wrath. how bad could it be? believe it or not, this guy thinks he has an idea. a researcher at johns hopkins, he's predicted how many of us may lose power. remember, irene left 7 million without power. >> our model suggest 10 million. >> reporter: roughly 10 million without power for a week or more. if 50 million feel the effect of this, 1 in 5, could be without electricity. a very big storm coming our way. >> that's an unbelievable number. >>> we'll go back out to sam champion in new york city, in preparations under way for how this city, the largest city in the country, would deal with hurricane sandy. >> bianna, you know, we have seen storms move up this coastline and breeze by new york. only one hurricane in recent memory irene made a move to this city and the city got ready for it. forecasters are being careful to let folks know right away that this storm has more strong effects than irene may
. want to bring the governor on governor chris christie is talking about what more needs to be done. >> we need people to stay off the road. motor heists should check 511-nj.org for up to the minute information on road closures. we'll talk about the power situation. right now state-wide, these are approximate numbers, everybody. they're approximate numbers. 35,000 people state-wide without power. 21,000 of those are the atlantic city electric area. 13,000 from jcp & l and about 1,000 for psg & e from orange and rockland county company. bpu is working to assist after the industries obtain the needed approvals for essential sji employees and subcontractors to access atlantic city many support of the combined heat and power generation units servicing revel and borgada, and we're also monitoring the utility companies' efforts to open stage and housing areas to accommodate the thousands of outside crews and their heavy equipment that are migrating into the state to assist in our recovery efforts and that stuff has already begun. currently there's 15 staging areas that set up around the s
a dozen flights of stairs to get them out. president obama and new jersey governor chris christie toured damaged areas of new jersey yesterday. the two put political differences aside to do what is right for victims of superstorm sandy. they walked through one of the hardest hit neighborhoods and visited a shelter. the federal communications you're going to be ok. he sprang into action immediately to help get us those things. it has been a great working relationship. >> president obama said his top priority is to get car restored. the federal communications commission says wireless service is improving in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. but serious outages remain in hard-hit areas like new jersey and new york. where cell phone users crowded around power strips yesterday to charge their phones. sandy's blow to mobile phone sites from virgina to massachusetts gives fresh impetus for federal requirements that wireless networks have backup power systems. phone companies went to court and blocked backup power rules proposed after hurricane katrina. a fomer f-c-c executive tells bloomberg
and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bonded with his state and recognized the importance of federal and state cooperation. on the other hand, the notion that haley barbour's big giant brand not having to think about politics, i'm a little skeptical of. >>
are jumping in because we want to hear from governor chris christie who is speaking now the. >> 24 hours and what they'll have to contend with over the coming days, weeks and months. i'll first say to all of you, especially those out there who are facing loss, devastation and a heartbreaking reality that your home may be gone, we are with you. we have a long road ahead of us but i have complete confidence we are going to come out of this better and stronger than before. this state is too tough to give in to this type of devastation, and we in the government will be here to work with you to have new jersey completely recover. i've spoken with president obama several times. last time was at midnight last night. he assured me that we would have an expedited process with fema, get whatever assistance we needed. he moved an expedited process this morning by declaring new jersey a major disaster area. the eight counties that are receiving an medek louisiana ratioand immediate individual, atlantic, cape may, hudson, excess. middle south momoth, ocean and union. note this list is not final and m
? >> ginger, thank you. >>> we're joined by governor chris christie of new jersey. i know you've been working through the night. give us the latest on the situation in bergen county. a levy breaking. up to 1,000 people need to be rescued. >> we're in the midst to do the rescues. it was not a dam or a levee. it was just a berm. the tidal surge that came up the bay and newark bay, caused that to overflow. obviously, we have lots of people waiting to be rescued. that rescue started during the night. >> what's your biggest concern across the state right now? >> george, it's hard to tell. we haven't had daylight to assess all of the damage. we have a battered jersey shore. we have cities without power because of flooding at the newark bay area. we have 2.4 million people without power across the state. this is a major disaster. we're trying to save as many lives as possible. with an urban search and rescue teams on the shore and in berten county. we have over 200 state roads closed. this is a significant storm. >> we've seen the devastating images from atlantic city. the boardwalk, facing so much
jersey governor chris chris stey is -- chris christie is known for speaking his mind. the governor was not happy on monday with the way the atlantic city mayor handled things as the hurricane approached. take a listen. >> for some reason to stay we now have a large number of people we can't quantify at this point in atlantic city, and at this juncture there is no other way to go. they will have to ride out the storm there and until at least 7:00 tomorrow morning. i cannot in good conscience send rescuers in as the storm is about to hit in the next hour. nor can i send them in the dark given all of the various hazards that would occur. >> the governor is making the poimt he doesn't want to risk more lives because the word did not get out as it perhaps should have for the people to evacuate in that region. >> there were about 500 people being rescued as the storm battered cape may and a lot of those people chose not to leave. >>> federal and state emergency services are doing their best to cope with the consequences of this monster storm. >> the new england states are taking their sh
